The attached photo is a black or purple pearl: 4 mm .450 ct. wgt. near Round, Lightly Blemished and an unprofessional opinion is it is of good quality.
With that said and my research I deem it to be worth very little.
An opinion on worth is appreciated.

It might have little $ value, but it looks nice and it has a story behind it. :)
